“Modern motel, top service, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

This motel is excellent - very helpful and welcoming owners, spotless unit, great location and modern design. The price was good too, hence a well deserved "excellent" review! Will be back!

Room Tip: Rear rooms away from street are very quiet

Awesome motel, short walk to the beach, clean, tidy and modern. Lovely spa and pool area. Managers Pete and Gina are a real treat, very informative and friendly. Great place for the corporate traveler or the family with rooms for 1 to rooms for 7....

We stayed here just the one night and unfortunately it rained the whole time but we found the rooms spacious and clean with everything we needed.I hope we get back to this area again so we can stay here again and see the beaches.Even though it rained we still got to try and enjoy the unique pool with the attached ultra-hot spa!

This motel ticked all the boxes for us - car park at the door, no stairs, spacious unit with a through breeze, attractive contemporary decor, high standard of maintenance and cleanliness, good lighting both day and night, bath, private outdoor area, huge bed, decent pillows, comfortable sofa. The beach across the road and down a walkway - short car ride from restaurants etc. Probably not that suitable for somebody without a car but perfect for us.

We spent 7 nights at the Beach House Motel and found it very comfortable, clean and the kitchen adequately equipped to suit our needs. Our hosts, Gina and Pete were very friendly and helpful in pointing out things of interest in the area. We enjoyed the use of the pool and outdoor spa and also the BBQ. We also appreciated having a private area at the back to sit and relax. The room was very clean and the service excellent. It was a short walk to the beach making it an ideal location for people looking for a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: We were staying seven nights and it was nice to have a room on the ground level with nobody above us...

Our family stayed for a week after new year and had a wonderful time. We had the two room motel which worked well for 5 people. The kids lived in the pool when they weren't at the beach and we all had a wonderful time. The Spa and pool area work really well either as a refreshing dip after the beach or a pre bedtime relax (or even instead of going to the beach).
The Hosts looked after us wonderfully - not intrusive but made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed - very friendly.
We'd like to come back but are worried that all our friends may get in first! thoroughly recommend as a place to stay and holiday.
